YEAR 6 NEWSLETTER 1 – September 2018

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Year 6! I hope you had an enjoyable summer break. The children have returned to school refreshed and ready to spend their last year with us having fun and working hard! Mr Thomas will be working with me again in Y6 this term, and the timetable for this half term is as follows:


Homework will continue as last year starting next Monday. There will be additional regular reading homework given to support our Monday guided reading sessions; your child will need to ensure that their reading books and reading journals are in school every week. Please could you continue to support your child’s reading attainment by ensuring that their reading homework is completed. If a child fails to complete the required number of pages and the task, they will be unable to participate in their group and they will also be at risk of not achieving age related expectations at the end of Y6. Maths homework will take the form of Times Tables Rockstars or children may sometimes be asked to learn some mathematical facts, particularly if the topic is new.
As you can see, PE is on Tuesdays and Thursdays this half term. PE kits must be in school on these days to avoid having to borrow kit from the cupboard! This does include a pair of proper trainers for any outdoor activities.


We have a trip next Thursday 13th September to York Castle Museum to start our topic this half term – The Swinging Sixties! Details will follow by Parentmail today. If you have any resources, especially pictures that you think would be of interest to us then please send them in – we will look after them!


I look forward to meeting you all at our first parent’s consultation in a few weeks. Until then, if you do need to speak to me about anything then please pop in at 3:30pm and I’ll be happy to speak to you. Alternatively, you can email me at j.ward@springbankprimary.org.


Yours faithfully,


Mrs Jo Ward (Y6 teacher/Literacy coordinator)
